In regards to your article last week on UR’s open-container policy (“Burns addresses Senate on public open-container policy”), we applaud your efforts in investigating this spike in student violations and share the University’s concern about this serious issue. However, the picture displayed on the front page of the newspaper contains Phi Sigma Sigma letters and therefore associates our sorority with the violations discussed in the article.

We understand that Kendrick apparently has the most student violations in Hill Court, but the photograph inadvertently suggests Phi Sigs are a part of this trend.

We appreciate your investigative journalism and also your willingness to allow us to share our perspective on the piece.
